We are back home from the beach. We drove up to Virginia Beach from Hatteras Village on Saturday to spend the 4th of July. We got a hotel room in which the dogs relaxed while we went out on a fireworks cruise out of Lynnehaven Marina. We saw and chatted with a young man whom we met last year at the same cruise. He was and still is one of the mates on the boat, working for tips. He revealed that he plans to join the Coast Guard, but that working on a fishing boat has been his dream job since he was a little kid.
We drove back today and about an hour out of Virginia Beach it started raining. It was the first rain for the whole week with the exception of a small shower one night while we were sleeping. The luggage bags on the roof made the windows leak and the inside of the car is damp. There are also 2 very wet luggage bags that will need dealing with tomorrow.
It was a great vacation and those cabanas are so cute it would be nice to buy one, if only the drive there was not so long.
Waiting for me in my mailbox were four pieces of fabric I ordered while on vacation--two pieces of Tula Pink's Perched fabric from the Nest collection and 2 other pieces of fabric for a present for my mother. I may have time to take out the sewing machine tomorrow, if I get enough vacation clean up done.
